As for looks, my family has a tradition of going grey in their 20s, so it could be a long hard road.
How old are you GMC if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks mate, but I don't feel all that young really. I felt young when I first joined alright ... I guess your company and conversations shape you - the ability to have intelligent conversations here has been of immense help to me over the last few years. There just ain't that many people who want to discuss obscure historical arguments. I don't know what age I imagined you to be, but I guess 29 fits as well as anything.

Yeah, I didn't feel young when I was 19 either.

When I'm old(er) I'll probably spend a lot more time at home. Watching telly, sitting on the internet, gardening or whatever people who spend a lot of time at home do. At the moment, I still like to get out, quite a lot.

Not that there's anything wrong with spending a lot of time at home, you understand. It's just not for me. Not yet anyway.

Oh yeah. I'll probabably be a grumpy old git, on account of the fact that I can't get out and about as much.

I dread becoming really old, primarily because of the loss of good health. One's health is, of course, the most important thing we have. As my body fails me and the aches and pains increase, I expect to become really depressed in old age. I'm depressed merely thinking about it, and it hasn't even happened yet!
